3 Southern Gals Throwback Thursday Link-up

Man oh man, is it great to be home! Granted, I'm working on about 4-5 hours of sleep but hey! Ain't nothin' but a thang!

It's my most favoritest (is that a word??) time of the week... well after the weekend. Nevertheless, welcome back to another week of 3 Southern Gals Throwback Thursday Link-Up. As always, the rules are below and the spot to link your throwback post (not blog) is down below as well.

This week, I'm reflecting back onto football season. And more specifically a trip. Football is a big thing here in the south, and especially in my family. See, we're all slightly obsessed Auburn fans. And we're mighty proud of that.

A history lesson for ya'll - I have a very, very long line of family members that have attended Auburn University. I was the first in my generation to break that cycle, and boy it was hard to do! The honest to God reason I turned Auburn down, and stayed in Florida, was due to finances. I just didn't have the funds to cover out-of-state tuition, whereas being a Florida resident, I had a scholarship to cover the majority of my costs for school.

That's neither here nor there. My love for Auburn - the town, the team, the spirit - runs blood deep. I always feel like I'm at home when I'm in Auburn. I'm sure a lot of that has to do with the fact that I've been visiting Auburn all my life.

Lucky for me, my ever-sweet-and-wonderful fiance has quite a deep love for Auburn as well! All of his family has history with University of Florida, or the Gators, so they were sad to see their baby boy move towards a different shade of orange and blue. I was in no way responsible for this........

Okay, okay. I took him to an Auburn game. That's it. The magic of being in Auburn did it!

In addition to the football and atmosphere, being with family at these football games are the biggest reasons why we love being in Auburn. Fellowship, food, football... What more can one ask for? So today, I'm looking back on the wonderful time we had while staying at Lake Martin just outside of Auburn.

Welcome back to another week of 3 Southern Gals Throwback Thursday Link Party.  We are go glad you are joining us.  We had several great link ups last week.  It has been a blast looking through old pictures and reading how you and your love met.  It is always fun to look back at older blog post as well.  That is what is so great about this link party.  Anyone can link up!!  You either share a post you wrote today that shares old pictures and/or stories.  But if you already have something else scheduled for today, or maybe you just found this link-up, no up an old blog post.  We just ask if you link up a previous blog posting that it be older than a week old.  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask one of us.
